The former Red Sox fireballer stands accused of lying before Congress about his steroid use.
WASHINGTON—Jury selection is slated to begin today in the retrial of former Red Sox ace Roger Clemens. The seven-time CY Young Award winner is back in court nine months after the government failed to prove he lied to Congress when he denied using performance enhancing drugs in 2008, according to The Associated Press. Last July, US District Judge Reggie Walton declared a mistrial after only two witnesses had been called stating that prosecutors had made a mistake that even a “first-year law student wouldn’t make.” The prosecutors slipped up by introducing evidence previously banned by Judge Walton. The second trial is expected to last four to six weeks, and federal sentencing guidelines indicate Clemens would receive up to 15 months to 21 …

In honor of Fenway Park's 101st season, we have put together some fun facts about baseball's crown jewel that you may not know.
In honor of Fenway Park’s 101st season kicking off today, we thought we would honor that “lyric little bandbox,” as writer John Updike famously called it, that has become as much a part of Boston as dropped “Rs,” the Charles River and disgraced public officials, with some fun facts, courtesy of the Fun Trivia and Baseball Statistics websites. So without further ado, here are some things you may not know about Boston baseball’s holiest of holies: Check out this report of Fenway’s first game, penned by Boston Globe scribe T.H. Murnane. We would love to hear our readers’ memories of Fenway over the years, and would love to share some of ours. Tell us your favorite Fenway Park moments in the comments below, and let’s get this discussion …
Is it more of the same? Or will the Sox respond?
A 1-5 start by the Red Sox has put a quick damper on the optimism of sunny Fort Myers spring training. But even managing just one win before opening day at Fenway is an improvement on last year. And, in case you don't have a good memory or decided to repress the last month of last season, the 2011 Red Sox didn't finish so well, either. Fenway Park is celebrating its 100th anniversary this season. The team that played the inaugural season at Fenway? They won 105 games and beat the Giants in the World Series. But as Rick Pitino might say, Smokey Joe Wood isn't walking through that door. The Red Sox have changed their manager and management. They've shuffled around some pitchers, added some outfielders and changed their shortstop. But does it…
To celebrate the Boston Red Sox home opener, we thought we would take a brief look at the South End park that once housed Boston's Senior Circuit entry.
On a sunny April afternoon in 1912, the Boston Red Sox took the field at their new home atop the reclaimed mudflats of the city’s Fenway section. Twenty-seven thousand fans graced the newly-built grandstands to watch Boston’s American League entry open the season against, fittingly enough, the New York Highlanders—the franchise which would be rechristened the Yankees less than a decade later. The local nine prevailed, earning a 7-6 victory in 11 innings. Hall of Fame outfielder Tris Speaker plated the winning run. Were it not for the sinking of the Titanic less than a week prior, the opening of Fenway Park would have been front page news in all nine of Boston’s daily newspapers. While baseball’s holiest of holies has undergone many changes…

Every day leading up to this weekend's 116th Boston Marathon, South End Patch will feature a different local entrant.
According to the official Boston Marathon website, many South Enders have registered to run in the 2021 Boston Marathon. For the days leading up to the marathon, we will feature some of our South End marathoners and encourage you to cheer each of them to the finish line! Name: Alyssa Held Marathon Experience: This will be the first marathon for Held, a South End resident. “I was apprehensive but figured I have been running for so many years that why not give it a try?” She said of her decision to run this year. “The first thing I did was tell everyone I knew that I was going to do this so I wouldn't back down! Then I found a novice training program online and consulted everyone I knew who had ever done this before.” Held began training …
